There’s something in the Staten Island comedy waters, because Pete Davidson is officially dating Kim Kardashian!
The last time we were this excited about a SI romance, Scarlett Johanssen was linked with Colin Jost – and they’re now married!
I mean with the length of time it took Pete to propose to ex Ariana Grande, we probably won’t have to wait long for ‘Kete’s wedding bells to start ringing.
The loved-up couple were pictured holding hands on Wednesday in Palm Springs, California
Kim, 41, with Pete, 28, celebrating his birthday at Kim’s ‘momger’ Kris Jenner’s $12m mansion.
Running errands with the SKIMS founder, the SNL funnyman was pictured wearing trousers from Kim’s pyjama line – with one leg rolled up to reveal his bold yellow socks and tattoo.
Although many think their relationship is a PR stunt, or a ‘rebound’ romance, one thing is clear – they seem super happy in each other’s company. Kim (notorious for her pout, is actually smiling – and that’s beautiful!)
Rumours about the pair potentially dating started circulating a few weeks back after they shared a kiss during a sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Later, the duo were spotted at a theme park together, with sources hinting that they had been ‘texting all day’ since meeting.
Since then, a source has confirmed that the couple are an item, telling E! News: ‘They are really happy and seeing where it goes.
‘Pete has told her he doesn’t want to see anyone else. She is telling some people they aren’t super serious but she isn’t seeing anyone else… She’s trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him.’
They added: ‘Kim is smitten over him and it’s very exciting to her.’
As for Kim’s family and friends, the insider said ‘everyone is happy for her’.
We all know that Kim isn’t the first A-lister Pete has dated as his relationship history includes Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale and Phoebe Dynevor.
Kim has just recently come out of a high profile marraige with rapper Kanye West, who she shares four children with.
This news goes to show that you can laugh literally anyone into bed, or a relationship! We wish them all the best.
